Book the entire farm (four houses plus Pavilion/Reception Facility) for your Charlottesville area wedding, anniversary party, family reunion, retreat or other special event. Wolf Trap Farm features panoramic views of mountains, pastures, horses and cattle, miles of board fencing and beautiful woodlands full of trails. The farm complex is a Virginia Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Manor House is at the heart of the farm complex, and features 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, two kitchens, a large patio and boxwood garden. Nestled behind the Manor House is the 1856 Servants' Cottage, with its huge covered patio. Just down the hill is the Pond House, a more contemporary cottage overlooking a pond full of bass, bream, frogs and turtles. A few hundred yards away is the Milker's Cottage, with its large screened porch and stunning interior. The setting is truly idyllic, with horses and cattle as part of your scenery. The Charlottesville area, with its stunning scenery, many wineries, and historic sites such as Monticello, Montpelier, and rural historic districts, has become a top choice for weddings and other special gatherings. Wolf Trap Farm hosted over two-dozen weddings in 2014. We also host corporate picnics, reunions, anniversary parties, etc. Our new Pavilion is enclosed on three sides, accommodates 150 under roof and has an overflow patio that can seat another 40 - 50, and has a stage and ample dance floor. There is an oversized ladies' dressing/bathroom, men's bathroom, and a caterer's warming kitchen. Our new hilltop ceremony site is just behind the Pavilion. Be sure to visit the farm's website for more details about booking the farm and Pavilion for your wedding or other large gathering. Also, please visit our Facebook page for links to photographers' blogs showing recent weddings at the farm, links to online reviews, more pictures, and a link to a short wedding video showing the farm in all its glory. All ages are happy at the farm. The little ones play in the great outdoors, the oldsters stroll the grounds, the teenagers and young adults go on excursions on or off the farm, the dads can fish, the girls can soak in the hot tub, and the dogs are particularly happy. If you have ever driven the winding country roads around Charllottesville, admiring the beautiful estates and wondering what it would be like to visit such places, perhaps for a wedding or party, here is your opportunity.
